Last month, the 70th Annual Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles. Lots of sparkling wine was being poured and that wine was not Champagne.....it was a sparkling wine from Italy, the Ferrari Brut Trento DOC! I wrote about how an Italian wine became the official sparkling wine of the Emmys in a recent column in the Napa Valley Register which you can read here.
The 70th Annual Emmy Awards took place this week, and throughout all the pre- and post-Emmy events, as well as at the ceremony itself, sparkling wine was being drunk.
Logically, you might think it was Champagne. But, in fact, the Official Sparkling Wine of Emmy Awards is from Italy. It is Ferrari Trento Brut DOC, a blanc de blanc made from Chardonnay and matured for two years in the bottle.
